Design and government are natural allies. 

Both seek to serve the people in meeting their fullest potential 
and in helping the nation achieve its highest aspirations. 

A restructured economy, rapidly advancing technology and 

increasingly diverse social and cultural environments combine 

to make our v/orld complex and difficult to understand. 

Good design can bring clarity and order to everyday life. 

It is a universal presence which impacts everyone. 

As the federal government responds to changes in society, 

technology, culture, and the economy, design can be an 

integral part of the process. It can illuminate the reinvention 

of our government - helping it operate internally more smoothly 

and efficiently, and making it more understandable 

and user-friendly to its citizen customers. 

Federal Design Achievement Awards illustrate some of 
the effective ways that the combination of art and science in design 

are serving both government and society. This year's projects 

demonstrate the strategic value of design in meeting environmental 

challenges, improving communities, educating and inspiring our 

citizens, solving human problems and advancing the cultural life 

of the nation. They are a tribute to the finest in our federal agencies 

and to designers whose vision, creativity and commitment are 

making government better able to fulfill its responsibilities to the 

people it serves. The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to 

honor these 11 projects and salute the federal agencies and 

designers who have improved the lives of so many Americans.
